Navigating in the configuration
The configuration manager screen is split
in 2 sections: left the navigation tree-view, and right the grid-view.
It is only the tree-view where you can edit the configuration. The grid-view
helps you having a better overview on the tables and table mappings section.
When you change something to settings,
it will be saved to the registry of the workstation you're working on
when you exit the configuration manager. This includes the widths of the
columns in the grid-view.

your grid behaviour

when enabled the grid-view is filtered whenever you click on a connection
in the tree-view.
- Filter when table is selected:

The grid-view is filtered containing only elements of the selected combination

- Point to field when row is selected:
when enabled the tree-view will automatically focus on the field selected
in the grid-view. If the field is not visible in the tree-view when

to have the field visible.
